An Uphill Climb!
I'm still on cloud nine after my weekend getaway in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I fell in love - with hiking! Trace and I explored a trail leading to the top of a gorgeous waterfall. The views were totally worth the effort it took to get up there, but it turns out that was the easy part. The ground was so steep and uneven on the way back down that we had to be very careful where we put our feet. It was slow going, but we made it (and Trace only had one meltdown)!
For the first time ever, I didn't gain any weight during a vacation. I'm really surprised because I ate so well! It had to be all the hiking. What a fun way to exercise! I can't wait to do it again and check out some trails closer to home. I found this trail in Arkansas using the AllTrails app. Check it out here! Tip: hit the trails early to avoid the crowds.
